Knowing how to clean pots and pans to look like new and how to store your cookware can increase the longevity of your pots and pans so that you can continue to cook delicious meals for many years to come.
Cookware can be a significant investment piece, which is why learning the best ways to clean your pots and pans not only improves the performance of your cookware, but makes your purchase more cost effective.
Many of us are guilty of skipping the instructions and figuring it out as we go, but when it comes to cookware, not reading the instructions or product care guides can damage your pots and pans and impact their cooking performance and appearance.
All ProCook cookware comes with small guides and instructions so that you can learn how to use, care for and store your pots and pans properly for more consistent cooking.
TIP: Check out our product care guides to ensure that all your cookware continues to perform to the best of its ability.
There’s no denying that food will stick or burn to a pan and water spots will appear, which is why learning how to care for your cookware and counter these common issues is essential so that you can prolong its lifespan. Each material has its own requirements, so learning about each material’s own needs can reduce the risk of damaging your pots and pans.
Although stainless steel cookware is renowned for its durability, taking good care of your pots and pans is the best way to preserve their lifespan for longer.
Anodised pots and pans are incredibly conductive, lightweight and can withstand vigorous washing for consistent cooking and easy maintenance.
Cast iron pots and pans are not only extremely tough but also remain hot as they hold heat for a considerable length of time. Before using your cast iron cookware, you need to season your pan to create a non stick surface. Do not put cast iron in the dishwasher as this can ruin the seasoning.
As the name suggests, non stick pots and pans keep food from sticking to the surface and burning. However, accidents do happen, and food can still stick to and burn on non stick cookware.
Storing your pots and pans properly and using pan protectors can prolong the life of your cookware and protect their non stick coatings. What’s more, all cookware should be properly dried with a tea towel before being stored in a cool and dry space, preventing rust from developing.
TIP: Our ProCook pan protectors can be placed between your non stick pots and pans, acting as a barrier and stopping the non stick coating from being scratched off.
Pots and pans require different cleaning methods and products depending on the material they are made from and their coatings. This can all seem very complicated, but to make cleaning and caring for your pots and pans easier, ProCook offer a selection of cleaning products and cookware accessories.
When paired with a pot or dish brush, our stainless steel and cast iron cleaners aid you in effortlessly removing dirt and stuck-on food to improve your cookware’s performance.
Kitchen utensils like spoons and spatulas are ideal when cooking with pots or pans as they allow you to safely stir your food for consistent results and help you avoid burning the food to the surface. However, metal kitchen utensils risk scratching the finish.
Scratches not only ruin the appearance of your cookware but can also reduce its cooking quality. Utensils made from nylon, wood or silicone are kinder to your cookware, especially on non stick coating, and will ultimately help prevent scratches appearing on your cookware.
